A Partridge?

Perhaps re-imagined is too grand a phrase, but we thought it would be fun to come up with a book for each of the 12 Days of Christmas, taking the theme of what 'my true love gave to me' each day and finding a book that fits the theme (sort of). Here's what we came up with - add your suggestions in the comments:

12 Drummers Drumming 11 Pipers Piping 10 Lords-a-Leaping
Could 12 drummers rock as hard as this guy?
More than 11 pipes in there surely?

Leaping, killing and all other kinds of -ing, in fact
9 Ladies Dancing 8 Maids-a-Milking 7 Swans-a-Swimming
And the men do their fair share too

Not a great deal of swimming, but lots of Bella Swan
6 Geese-a-Laying 5 Gold Rings 4 Calling Birds

Even geese should be prepared

Well, duh

Um, sorry about this one

3 French Hens 2 Turtle Doves And a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Surely the best thing to do with a French hen
